It's playoff time for Juan's soccer season, and his team couldn't be doing better!

After a 5-2 loss on Wednesday, they came back to win 3-2 on Friday (I missed both games due to my trip to Cornwall).
They played again yesterday morning, and boy did they come out to play!

First game, at 10:30 AM

2008-07-19 - Soccer playoffs 032
"Guys, we're in semi-finals, no matter what happens in this afternoon's game"
"But we should win anyway"
"OK, let's"

Second game at 3:15 PM
2008-07-19 - Soccer playoffs 034
See Juan run!

2008-07-19 - Soccer playoffs 035
He shoots... keeper makes a save!

2008-07-19 - Soccer playoffs 036
But we get the rebound... GOAL!

2008-07-19 - Soccer playoffs 037
We won again! It was 2-0 this time (Juan scored the second via Penalty Kick)

2008-07-19 - Soccer playoffs 041
"Three cheers for the blue team!"
Blue keeper cries. He didn't know yet, but I did; they're playing against us again tomorrow,
this time for a spot in the final game.

2008-07-19 - Soccer playoffs 045
"Good game...good game...good game...good game..."

As I said above, our team is playing again at 9:15 AM today (yes, in 8 hours) for the semi-finals.
After that, we all run to Santi's game (it's at 11:00 AM).
If Juan's team wins, we have to run again after Santi's game, to go play the final.
Then I have to coach another soccer practice from 7:00 PM to 8:30 PM.

Sigh. A typical Sunday... :-)

  10. Aw, poor little keeper.I like in the first picture where they are doing the "nice game" thing, how one player is walking hand-in-hand with a little girl. His sister?
